What are the benefits of olpheel protect?
Incorporating Olpheel Protect to your protocol can contribute to:
- Support natural defenses
- Prevent the risk of bacteria and parasites in the water
- Prevent the risks associated with bacteria and parasites in the gut
- Strengthen gut barrier
Why use Olpheel Protect?
Pathogens and diseases are one of the main issues of aquaculture. Salmonids being produced mostly in freshwater controlled environment but also in sea cages, are far from safe. Sea lice is the biggest issue in the salmon industry worldwide, not only being a parasite that hurts and weakens the animal but helping other disease occurrence as Vibriosis, SRS (Salmonid Rickettsial Septicaemia) or AGD (Amoebic Gill Disease).
Antibiotics have proven to not be the long-term solution and their use has to be reduced because of antimicrobial resistance and their negative image among consumers. Control of pathogen in the environment is not possible in systems that use sea-water or freshwater without high-technology treatment.
This is why we have developed Olpheel Protect, a botanical solution to strengthen the natural defences of salmonids against these many factors. Olpheel Protect has also been shown to reduce bacterial and parasite pressure in the water and in the animals’ gut.
